Our Approach to Functional Medicine for our patients in Alberta and British Columbia:

Our Functional Medicine expert, Nurse Practioner Kathy, works closely with patients, creating a therapeutic partnership. We believe in active patient participation and emphasize lifestyle changes, including nutrition, physical activity, sleep, and stress management, as key components of individualized treatment plans. Your unique situation and goals will be considered, leading to an improved overall sense of health and well-being.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

At GLO, we offer a personalized approach to naturally optimizing hormones, ensuring safety and effectiveness. Bioidentical hormones mirror the molecular structure of natural hormones, often compounded by specialized pharmacies. Some may include patented pharmaceuticals as part of your treatment plan. Additionally, we consider the influence of key nutrients and lifestyle factors on hormone stability.
Thyroid and Adrenal Care Vitality at Glo Calgary

Balancing the Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal Axis and Thyroid Health

The Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal (HPA) axis acts as a critical feedback loop, regulating our central stress response system and governing processes such as digestion, immunity, mood, emotions, sexuality, and energy. The thyroid gland also plays a pivotal role, affecting metabolism and energy levels. Our comprehensive approach evaluates the intricate interplay of organs and hormones to enhance your health and vitality. Your individualized treatment plan addresses the factors influencing this system, aiming to make positive improvements.

Customized Weight Management and Nutrition Plans

We tailor our diet and nutrition plans to address each patient's specific health and weight goals. While the ketogenic diet is popular, the "dirty keto" trend can have adverse health effects. At GLO, we guide you towards a successful "clean keto" approach or offer alternative strategies for your weight management plan. Recognizing that the right nutritional approach varies from one patient to another, we provide numerous treatment options. We may also incorporate intermittent fasting and fasting mimicking diets when suitable as part of your treatment plan.
